Childhood Anxiety is becoming more commonplace in today’s society. Having an anxious child is extremely worrying for parents and quite often there seems to be very few places offering support especially when it comes to young children.
Children are never too young to start practicing mindfulness. There is an emerging body of research that indicates mindfulness can help children improve their abilities to pay attention, to calm down when they are upset and to make better decisions. In short, it helps with emotional regulation and cognitive focus.
Take time as a family to follow a guided meditation or even just listen to calming music and practice taking deep breaths. Remember to keep the process simple. Mindfulness is a big word for young kids to understand. Put simply, mindfulness is awareness. It is noticing our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and anything that is around us and happening right now. This is an extremely effective way to bond as a family and to switch off from the stresses and strains of modern life.
